Found August 02, 2012 on State of the Texans:

If there is one Houston Texans’ player that we had to catch up to it was quarterback T.J. Yates. One of the more beloved Texans to suit up, #13 won the respect of his teammate and Texans fans everywhere. After only leading the most important drive in team history and leading the team to their first ever playoff win, the 2011 season was a blur to Yates.

The off-season was a breath of fresh air for Yates, and we had a chance to talk about the off-season, the addition on John Beck and Case Keenum to the quarterback room and his noticeable weight loss from last season.
